This session gives pupils the chance to look at the life of suffragette Emily Davison, a resident of the Borough of Runnymede.

Davison, who is suggested as a significant individual to study in the new national curriculum, studied at Egham's Royal Holloway University before joining the suffragette movement. She ultimately lost her life whilst trying to deliver a message to advance her cause.

The session looks at everyday life for Davison and what prompted her to join the suffragette movement. It also looks at how objects and clothing of the time contributed to the feeling of repression for women.

Booking Sessions

Initial Enquiry

Please complete the enquiry form as the initial stage of booking a session at school or at the museum. If you would rather discuss your requirements with the Education Officer, or would like to join our schools membership scheme, please telephone on 01932 565764, or email  [email protected]

Sessions at the Museum

Please note that for sessions at the museum we recommend that you visit before bringing your group so that you can familiarlise yourself with the facilities, although a risk assessment is sent with all booking conformations. Lunch is eaten in the education room, or in the museum garden if the weather permits. The museum has 2 unisex public toilets, one of which is adapted for wheelchair use and the museum has flat access throughout. Your group can use the museum shop, or if you prefer, pre-arranged "goody bags" can be ordered, details of which will be sent with your booking confirmation.

Sessions at School

Our session deliverer will aim to arrive at school at least 15 minutes before the start of the session. Some of the sessions we offer involve the transportation of a large number of artefacts and props so if a parking space near to the venue can be reserved that would be extremely helpful. Please notify us if there is not flat access to the classroom where the session is to take place.
